Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

And Now He’s Fired: Gooble Gobble, Gooble Gobble, Colin “Freakshow” Fletcher is No Longer One of Us

(Even in the face of despair, Fletcher always maintains a sunny disposition. Via Colin’s Twitter account.) 

Although not completely unexpected given his current 0-2 record in the promotion, the UFC’s recent firing of TUF: Smashes lightweight runner-up Colin “Freakshow” Fletcher might represent one of the fastest post-TUF firings for a finalist in the show’s history. After dropping a tepid decision to fellow runner-up Mike Ricci at UFC 158, the news of Fletcher’s firing was passed along over the weekend via Colin’s twitter. As one would expect, “Freakshow” maintained his sunny disposition in the face of despair:

Fletcher now joins TUF 6′s Tommy Speer, TUF 8′s Vinny Magalhaes, and TUF 1′s Brad Imes as the only TUF finalists to not be given a third fight (or second post-TUF fight) in the UFC before getting axed. To be fair, Imes was eventually brought back to face Heath Herring at UFC 69, but that was before the time of The Great Deluge.

Dire times are upon us, Potato Nation. Dire times.

Now, let’s see how Colin’s closest friends and family have taken the news…

At least it will be great to see the old gang again, right Colin? RIGHT COLIN?

Sorry, danomite - yeah, what you said.

If he didn't make himself look like a complete douche-bag criminal psychopath, I bet he'd still have a job. Even MMA fans are afraid of cannibal rapist clowns.

Pillow me to offer some comforter. Sheet happens. Nothing really mattress, anyways.

In retrospect, perhaps dressing up like a clown rapist before his fights wasn't the best idea, in terms of job security.

There is actually a show on AMC called freak show. The commercials look just like the black and white post above, only in color! I am not interested enough to watch that show, but maybe he can get an audition?

apparently he didn't see the clause in his contract stating when your performance is worse than you gimmick you can get fired

"Fletcher now joins TUF 6?s Tommy Speer and TUF 1?s Brad Imes as the only TUF finalists to not be given a third fight (or second post-TUF fight) in the UFC before getting axed."

You forgot about Vinny Magalhaes

Funny guy, terrible fighter. I guess there's not enough place for another Chael Sonnen.

I like Freakshow. Good guy. Hope he ends up somewhere good.
